Re: [Rant] UPS delivery will not ring the doorbell

I noticed our UPS driver always turns off the engine whenever he gets out of the truck. So he may turn off the engine 3 times in one short block. I always thought it was bad for diesel engines to be stopped and started repeatedly.

Every stop they shut off the engine and close the cargo doors. At least they are supposed to. As posted before the truck is wired with sensors on the doors, seatbelt parking break etc. So they know if the driver follows procedure. I think its a safety and security reason.
